Tomorrow I am getting a new guitar. My price limit is around $600. I play mostly pink floyd, john mayer, and led zeppelin. I was looking at a mexican strat but i wasnt sure. Does it stay in tune well? Can I get a decent zeppelin tone out of it? If it isnt good, any suggestions? (btw i play through a peavy vypyr 75w)

Are you gigging?

If not, sell the amp; add those funds to your total; get a 5w or 15w valve amp; and use the rest to get a Strat.

i think dark side of the moon was recorded with a MIM strat also they're awesome... had one, got rid of it, regrets :S

The strat is realy nice. But get a better amp. Tube amps, get one of those.

i think the vypyr is quite good. He could uprade it later.
also, +1 to the strat.

look into a telecaster as well. great guitars and it can get all the tone you have listed.

IMO I thought Jimmy Pages tone was best when he was using a tele
